Mercer Shakespeare Society

The Mercer Shakespeare Society is an organization of students, faculty, and staff who, following Ben Jonson’s lead, find in Shakespeare’s works a source of inspiration and delight that is “not of an age but for all time,” including our own, here and now in the 21st century. As a member of the society, you will meet regularly to read from Shakespeare’s works, share favorite passages, hear speakers from the worlds of literature and theater, view films, and attend performances and other Shakespearean events. We welcome everyone with an interest in and love for all things Shakespeare. Join us and help “give life” to the beauty and power of the Bard’s works here at Mercer University.
